#307 Python from 1994 to 2021, my how you've grown!
Play • 1 hr 12 min
Python has changed a lot since its inception 30 years ago. On this episode, you'll meet Paul Everitt and Barry Warsaw. They have both been involved with Python since the very first Python conference (called SPAM1 even). We discuss how it's changed but also how so many of the pressures and ideas from the very early days are still playing out in 2021. I'm sure you'll enjoy all the stories and reminiscing.
